Luke Aikins has gone down in the history books as the first person to skydive from a plane without a parachute and land safely. Aikins made the jump over the weekend and leaped out of a plane 7,620 meters up and free fell for 2 min before hitting a net suspended over the California desert. What…you thought he was gonna land on the ground?
Here’s the footage.
The net he landed on was just 30 meters by 30 meters and he had no backup parachute. That’s a pretty remarkable effort given that the slightest error and him missing the landing zone would have been fatal.
